Case adjourned for a social inquiry report

A Peel man who brought almost £6,000 worth of cocaine to the Island will not now be sentenced until August.

The case of 29 year-old Matthew David Joseph Prendergast of Castle Street was listed in Douglas courthouse today but now he will instead be sentenced on August 18th after the matter was adjourned for a social inquiry report.

He admits production of the drug and possession with intent to supply.

More than 80 grams of cocaine were recovered from Prendergast when he was arrested at Ronaldsway Airport on April 9.
